Magic in Threes release their second release on KingUnderground with a double sided funk 45 inspired by 70s soundtracks.
In 2016, Magic In Threes were writing and recording a new track every week. They spent so much time in the studio that year that the song ideas just kept coming, one after another. They have always been rooted in library music and over the years they’ve dug deeper and deeper into that sphere of inspiration.
“Finnish Funk” and “Shot Thru The Grease” are both loving homages to that genre. Heavy beats with diabolical melodies are the name of the game for The A-side, “Finnish Funk”. On the flip side “Shot Thru The Grease” has more of a loping feel to it with ample portions of moody thematic elements. Like a score to a lost 1970s Italian action film, these tracks hit like a hard nosed detective closing in on his next collar.
We try to keep the analogue sound alive at KU so except some surgery in the digital domain, the material was mastered by C. Obermayer with analogue gear based on the same circuitry that was available to the engineers in the middle part of the previous century.
